Nona the Ninth (The Locked Tomb Series #3) By Tamsyn Muir Cover Image

"If you’ve been anywhere in my proximity for the last two months, you’ve probably heard me squeal about Gideon the Ninth and the Locked Tomb series. What can I say about it? To start - This series is wild. Not for the faint of heart. Full of bones. Definitely not for everyone, but possibly the one series I would take with me during the zombie apocalypse.

For a quick summary, the quote from Charles Stross on the paperback cover of Gideon the Ninth, “Lesbian necromancers explore a haunted gothic palace in space!” and “Skeletons!”, is perfectly placed to lure in the right person. If you’re intrigued by the sound of this, pick this book up now and start reading immediately.

Gideon the Ninth is a wild ride of gothy sci-fi, post-apocalyptic fantasy, with a heavy touch of locked-room murder mystery. It’s heart-pricklingly emotional (with some light stabbing), hilariously sardonic and snarky. Its meme-filled, labyrinthian plot completely pays off in the end only to throw everything out the window and rebuild itself again in the second of the series, Harrow the Ninth. Harrow surprisingly beats out Gideon in confusing, WTF moments but finally begins to reveal itself and flesh out the universe, asking many important questions missing in Gideon. Tamysn Muir lines her myriad’s worth of mysteries up like intricately placed dominoes, ready to be knocked down in the third and fourth installments.

Without spoiling too much, I will say that Nona the Ninth comes out September 13th and I’ve read the extended preview. If the zombie apocalypse happens between now and then, not being able to get my hands on Nona will be my biggest regret."

Hester: A Novel By Laurie Lico Albanese Cover Image
ISBN: 9781250278555
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: St. Martin's Press - October 4th, 2022

"HESTER was a wonderful story by a gifted writer. I love history and this novel used Nathaniel Hawthorne’s novel THE SCARLET LETTER in the story. I will not write more to give it away. 

The book is set in 19th century Scotland and Salem, MA with references back to the witch hunts in both places a couple of centuries before. 

Isobel is a gifted woman with amazing insights which frighten some but are easily accepted and appreciated by others. 

Slavery is another thread running through this time in MA and this novel shares the ambiguities and hypocrisies of the issue. 

Read HESTER. You will not be disappointed."

The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times By Michelle Obama Cover Image
ISBN: 9780593237465
Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: Crown - November 15th, 2022

"I've learned it's okay to recognize that self-worth comes wrapped in vulnerability, and that what we share as humans on this earth is the impulse to strive for better, always and no matter what. We come bolder in brightness. If you know your light, you know yourself. You know your own story in an honest way. In my experience, this type of self-knowledge builds confidence, which in turn breeds calmness and an ability to maintain perspective, which leads, finally, to being able to connect meaningfully with others -- and this to me is the bedrock of all things. One light feeds another. One strong family lends strength to more. One engaged community can ignite those around it. This is the power of the light we carry."

~ Michelle Obama
